Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Fruit for this juicy cabernet originates in the Lodi area. Lodi is characterized by its warm dry summer days, cool breezy nights, and sandy soils. These conditions optimize the fruit characteristics without compromising a sturdy backbone of tannins and fresh acidity.
The Finnegan's Lake label are created by two independent wine makers who have been growing and crafting wines in Sonoma County for over 20 years. Both realize the importance of preserving and replenishing the soil on which their vines grow as well as maintaining a clear focus on recycling and reducing emissions to keep the air in their communities as clean as possible for years to come. For them, winemaking is not a two or three year journey, but a lifelong pursuit. They want to see their wines reflect strong fruit and vines, a strength that comes from exposure to the cleanest air and aquifers possible. This in turn will help guarantee that Finnegan’s Lake will continue to be the pure example of fresh, vibrant, California fruit that it is today. Crafted as highly enjoyable, elegant wines for everyday consumption, Finnegan's Lake are award winning wines you can feel good about.
On a plain above the Sacramento Delta lies the wine region of Lodi. Here, soils eroded from the Sierra Mountains result in a multitude of terroir alternatives. Moderating breezes blow in from nearby San Francisco Bay.
